Christmas Candles with Ruth Martin from Cucumberwood Candles


Tuesday 10th December 10.00am - 1pm


On this gloriously festive Candle-making Workshop you will be making 4 x 90g glass or tin container candles, with labels you can personalise - perfect for Christmas presents or a treat for yourself! 


You will be hands-on in the whole, relaxing process of candle making, from melting the wax, adding the essential oils (from a selection of delicious pre-made blends), to preparing the containers and pouring the wax.


Ruth will share her knowledge about essential oils with lots of great hints and tips. It’s a fun and relaxing session, you can’t make candles quickly - the wax melts at its own pace.  As the candles set you get the chance to breathe in the incredible smells, have a well-earned cuppa and indulge in home-made chocolate brownies!


If you would like to personalise the labels on your containers, please let Ruth know the wording you would like: – she will contact you 10 days before the Workshop to confirm your words. Then Ruth will have labels printed and ready for you on the day. On the glass containers, the personalised labels are on the side of the jar; on the tins the personalised labels are on the lid. 


All materials are provided and there are aprons for everyone, so just bring yourself!


Age 17+ (no exceptions - for more info. on our Young Adult courses, click here: Young Adults Workshops)
